Excerpt from the press release :
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 2, 2013. With great pleasure Artists Rep and Profile Theatre announce that Profile will make Artists Repertory Theatre their new home. Profile will produce and rehearse their next season at Artists Rep, beginning in January with their 2014 Sam Shepard Season. ThisJune, Profile willmove their business office from their current location at the Theater! Theatre! Building in SE Portland,to offices on the eastside of the Artists Rep campus.
This partnership offers a phenomenal opportunity for collaboration between these two
longstanding Portland theatre companies. This agreement quickly fell into place shortly after Profile learned, less than amonth ago,that their lease at Theater! Theatre! would not be renewed in June. Talks began immediately between management at both theatre companies.
With Profile’s urgent need to find a home and both organizations embracing a time of transition
with new artistic leadership, administrators believe that despite the unexpected circumstances,the timing and organizational evolution is nearly perfect for both companies.
